Looking for volunteer organization in Manila - know one?

Looking for one that works directly with the poor. (Not an office staff that directs money through channels, but one that does work right in slum areas.) Hoping to do a direct donation w/ no middle people involved.

I know I can research but my trip is soon, hoping someone can give me a good shortcut. THANKS.

we have been involved with Virlanie. My suggestion is do NOT donate money, instead buy milk and arrange it so you can drop it off at one of the baby orphanages. You can see the place for yourself. They have other orphanages, different age groups etc. as well.
